FridayQ: Ego

What is an activity that you can do better than anybody else you know?

This is a tricky one. Being at university, you’re surrounded by highly talented people from all walks of life and sometimes it can be hard to stand out. I’m the sort of person who’s a jack of all trades, but a master of none.

What is a subject where you are smarter than anybody else you know?

Knowledge of HTML syntax and Movable Type template tags 🙂

What is a trait you possess that makes you superior to lesser humans?

Knowledge of English grammar. I only did English to GCSE and even then only got a B grade, but I still despair sometimes when I see people – and worse, companies – who can’t use even basic grammar properly. Shops with “1000’s of CD’s reduced” just make me want to cry.

FQ Fiction: Which of your many stellar accomplishments should be recorded in the history books? (Can’t think of one? Make it up!).

If it weren’t for me single-handidly defeating the music industry and setting its poor artists and consumers free, then the world would not be the place you see today. Oh, wait, was that a dream? Darn.
